Keith on LGBT Community: Fear leads to hatred and judgment
India/Pahichan – After actor Kalki Koechlin extended her support to IICE Vodka’s Holding Hands Campaign to end intolerance towards the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community, actor Keith Sequeira of Bigg Boss fame has joined the campaign as well.
In an exclusive interview with ANI, Keith said the reason behind all these differences that we come across amongst ourselves is fear, and people should overcome it and focus more on love.
“I think hate comes from fear, it depicts a human’s dark side. When you fear people for being different than you, you tend to judge them without understanding and I think that’s the worst thing a human can do. And that’s the reason why people are opening up about their preferences because earlier their families won’t accept them for what they are. We people also need to get rid of anger and focus on love,” the 35-year-old told ANI.
He added, “The very thought behind the campaign of free love is choosing who you are, which is very individualistic. No matter what you are gay, lesbian or transgender you shouldn’t be labeled because categorisation is dividing people more and more. We all need each other. This campaign depicts freedom to express and celebrate who you are.”
This campaign triggered as a result of parliament’s failure in amending Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code.
